Who doesn’t love driving cars? There’s nothing like cruising down the highway by the sunset, or going for a road trip with family and friends. Imagine doing that in a sports car or an extravagant sedan, or maybe an electric car. And I’m sure most of us have imagined doing just that in our spare time.
